Established in the spring of 1997, the Project for the New American Century is a non- profit, educational organization whose goal is to promote American global leadership.The Project is an initiative of the New Citizenship Project. William Kristol is chairmanof the Project, and Robert Kagan, Devon Gaffney Cross, Bruce P. Jackson and John R.Bolton serve as directors. Gary Schmitt is executive director of the Project.“As the 20
th
century draws to a close, the United States stands as theworld’s most preeminent power. Having led the West to victory inthe Cold War, America faces an opportunity and a challenge: Doesthe United States have the vision to build upon the achievement of  past decades? Does the United States have the resolve to shape anew century favorable to American principles and interests?“[What we require is] a military that is strong and ready to meet both present and future challenges; a foreign policy that boldly and purposefully promotes American principles abroad; and nationalleadership that accepts the United States’ global responsibilities.“Of course, the United States must be prudent in how it exercises its power. But we cannot safely avoid the responsibilities of globalleadership of the costs that are associated with its exercise. Americahas a vital role in maintaining peace and security in Europe, Asia,and the Middle East. If we shirk our responsibilities, we invitechallenges to our fundamental interests. The history of the 20
th
century should have taught us that it is important to shapecircumstances before crises emerge, and to meet threats before they become dire. The history of the past century should have taught usto embrace the cause of American leadership.” – From the Project’s founding
